Movie Trailer: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Mark your calender for February 12, 2010, because The Lightning Thief is coming to the movies! The movie boasts a star studded cast and director Chris Columbus (he directed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets). Here is just a glimpse at the stars you will see: Uma Thurman as Medusa, Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson, and Pierce Brosnan as Chiron. Take a look at the trailer and I am sure you will agree with me that it looks fantastic!

Percy Jackson & the Olympians is a great series that both adults and kids enjoy, making it perfect for reading together. There is plenty of time to make sure you have read it before seeing the movie, so what are you waiting for, add Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Lightning Thief to your collection — if you haven’t already.

  • I am excited and hoping against hope that the movie comes close to being as good as the books. However, I’m disappointed in this trailer. I don’t think it shows much of anything and that people unfamiliar with the books will have no idea what the movie is about. Hopefully future previews and the movie will be better.

  • I agree that the preview does not offer much up for people that have not read the series. However, I do think that it shows off good cinematography, effects, and certainly has a star studded line-up of actors. I think it’s going to be great. And like you, I hope to see stronger previews.
